City of Graham officials, North Carolina dignitaries, development partners and homebuilders of Old Fields gathered for the official unveiling of the Kerr Scott Homeplace, a site listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The event marked the grand opening of the new home community.

The Kerr Scott Homeplace was home to former U.S. Sen. and North Carolina Gov. W. Kerr Scott, and birthplace and home to his son, Gov. Bob Scott. The home will serve as the welcome center and sales center of Old Fields, a 643-home master-planned mixed-use development. Former North Carolina Gov. Robert W. “Bob” Scott was on hand for the unveiling of his former home, which was recently renovated by the developer.

“Today is a memorable day for North Carolina’s political history, and for the City of Graham,” said Dave Wilkinson, co-president of Union Ridge Development. “The Kerr Scott Farm and Homeplace will now be preserved for future generations to visit and appreciate.”

“Old Fields’ residents will combine the exceptional living opportunities and technological advantages of a traditional development, while cherishing the great traditions of the Scott family,” said Union Ridge Development co-president Hal Byrd.

Old Fields will feature a variety of home styles from a team of custom builders, which includes Carroll Homes, Vesta Homes, Burgess Construction Company, DenMark Construction, ML Wilburn Construction, Biltmore Homes, J.D. Mahoney Construction and Trimark Development, Inc.

Old Fields’ first phase will offer 79 custom single-family and bungalow-style homes. The first homes are currently under construction at the master-planned community and are expected to be ready for move in by July 2006.
